About this pro

We are making a difference, one student at a time. We are a private music studio offering quality piano lessons, with 2 locations in San Antonio. Our specialties include the MusicTime program, Suzuki Piano, and praiseTime.

Traditional piano lessons require students to learn how to read music from the very beginning. Unfortunately, this approach is slow and frustrating. In the end, many students are not even able to play a simple song, like "Happy Birthday to You". In contrast, my approach focuses on the absolute joy of playing the piano. It imitates the natural process of learning how to talk by listening and demonstration. No more boring practice sessions and persistent hours of drills that typically come with traditional piano lessons. Music reading is introduced after you have developed a natural connection to the instrument and can play many songs. The bottom line is that the MusicTime approach guarantees success. In fact, you'll be playing great-sounding music from the very beginning.

Established in 2005, Mr. Aguilar has been teaching piano to children, teens, and adults in San Antonio since 2005. He specializes in the Suzuki method in order to teach classical music to young kids based on the same principles used when learning language -- listening, imitating, and repeating.

MusicTime is a hands-on piano training that makes it possible to learn a variety of songs in a short period of time. It's great for teenagers who want a fun, easy, and 'cool' way to learn piano or keyboards and even be able to play in a band or in school.

The praiseTime curriculum prepares students to play chord charts on the keyboard, different style accompaniments, improvisation, and transposition, all within a sacred repertoire of contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns. Students might be able to join a praise band at church and play along with guitar, bass, and drum players and singers.

Pablo Aguilar is a certified piano teacher (NCTM) located in San Antonio, TX. He is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

All ages are welcomed. Mr. Aguilar offers beginner and intermediate level piano lessons to new and transfer students.

    My two boys(ages 11 & 13) have been taking piano lessons with Mr Aguilar for 3 years. He is a wonderful piano teacher. He has always been very patient and encouraging with them.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
I teach young children to play the piano using the Suzuki method which is based on the same principles used when learning language--listening, imitating and repeating. For the older kids I use the MusicTime curriculum which is a hands-on piano training that makes it possible to learn a variety of songs in a short period of time. It's great for teenagers who want a fun, easy, and 'cool' way to learn piano or keyboards and even be able to play in a band or in school. Many homeschoolers prefer the praiseTime curriculum which prepares students to play chord charts on the keyboard, different style accompaniments, improvisation and transposition, all within a sacred repertoire of contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns. Students might be able to join a praise band at church and play along with guitar, bass, and drum players and singers.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Observe an actual lesson from the prospective teacher before you commit, attend a student recital sponsored by the teacher to hear the quality of performances, ask teacher to provide references from her/his current customers and call them, verify what music teaching organizations does the teacher participate with, verify what student opportunities does the teacher provide,
